Travel ban, playground case bring a big finish to sleepy Supreme Court term

Travel ban, playground case bring a big finish to sleepy Supreme Court termAfter every US Supreme Court term, Ralph Rossum typically adds upward of 10 of the court’s most significant constitutional law decisions to a constitutional law website he edits. This year, it looks like he’s only going to add five – and one of those came down only on Monday, as the justices sided 7-2, along narrow lines, with a Missouri church that had been denied state funding to resurface its preschool playground because of its religious affiliation. A by-product of that, experts say, is the mammoth nature of next fall’s term, starting with a hearing on President Trump’s travel ban executive order, which restricts the entry of immigrants from six Muslim-majority countries into the United States.
